Sweco’s Graduate scheme allows me a chance to share my own experiences and opportunities and learn from others. This gives me insight into the wider Sweco business, across multiple disciplines and the country.

I learn best through actually doing the work whilst studying simultaneously – and full-time education is not something I ever really enjoyed. Being able to earn a wage is important for me – along with not having to pay for a qualification.

Learning & Development

At Sweco, you can specialise in your field of technology or become a project manager with responsibility for large and complex projects. You might be interested in a management career with responsibility for a unit, department or business area. Either way, we’re with you all the way.

Learning & Development isn’t just a box we tick. We’re committed to developing talent and future-proofing your skills. Our approach allows you to learn-on-the-job and take advantage of all the support and education available to grow and stretch yourself, not just once but every single day.

We nurture our #SwecoDifferenceMakers through an accessible digital learning platform, People@Sweco, as well as industry-leading programmes like Ashridge’s LEAD, talent development programmes and a structured, holistic approach to on-the-job learning.

Our commitment to personal growth is transforming societies globally

Diversity & Inclusion

An inclusive workplace is a key factor in the positive development of society. We work hard to be a place where people celebrate who they are and what they bring to Sweco.

Sweco’s strength lies in the collective and wide-ranging expertise of our employees – but also in our differences. We view diversity and inclusion as essential to creating an innovative and inspiring working environment, and actively promote equal rights and opportunities regardless of gender, ethnic origin, nationality, religious belief, functional variations, sexual orientation or age.

Sweco has policies in place to help eliminating salary disparities for identical or equivalent work. Gender equality is a fundamental priority in Sweco’s Code of Conduct and sustainability mission, with a particular focus on the UN’s fifth Sustainable Development Goal.

As a gay man I recognise the importance of environments that leverage diversity to its fullest potential so that every individual can feel a sense of belonging and be their authentic self. This is why I am part of Sweco’s D&I group, where hard hitting questions and realities can be discussed all with the common goal of embedding diversity and inclusivity throughout every inch of Sweco.

Disability equality

At Sweco, everyone has the opportunity to grow, develop and thrive. No struggle – whether mental, physical, visible or invisible – is a challenge we cannot overcome to ensure you enjoy a rewarding and fulfilling career with us.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer. Under the Disability Confident Scheme we are committed to interview candidates that meet the minimum criteria for a role if they are covered by the Equality Act 2010 and opt in during the application process.

Sweco is also a member of the Business Disability Forum, which gives us access to auditing activities designed to help our colleagues identify gaps against the assessment criteria for Disability Confident – and offer guidance on best practice.

Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

At Sweco, we believe in attracting and recruiting the best talent. With the current skills shortage in the engineering sector, we recognise the breadth of expertise that our military personnel possess, from strong leadership and analytical skills to project management. Such skills are invaluable for the delivery of our projects.


As signatories of the Covenant, we join many of our clients and partners who have also pledged their commitment to support the members of the Armed Forces, by ensuring that these individuals and their families are treated fairly in the workplace and are fully integrated into the wider community.

We are proud to be a forces-friendly consultancy and reinforce the value we place on the skills and expertise talented service personnel have developed in their military careers, which vastly enrich Sweco’s diverse culture.

Having served in the British Army for 28 years prior to joining Sweco, I am proud to have known and worked with thousands of service personnel from around the world – and am equally proud to work with a number of fellow veterans as well as those still associated to our wonderful armed forces in my current role.

It’s great to share knowledge and best practice with future Sweco talent. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to Urbanisation, for example, but by sharing knowledge on what has worked – and importantly what has not worked – we can strive to achieve the best outcomes for local communities.
